9780143114864: The China Price: The True Cost of Chinese Competitive Advantage

In this landmark work of investigative reporting, former Financial Times correspondent Alexandra Harney uncovers a story of immense significance to us all: how China's factory economy gains a competitive edge by selling out its workers, environment, and future. Harney's firsthand reporting brings us face-to-face with a world in which intense pricing pressure from Western companies combines with ubiquitous corruption and a lack of transparency to exact a staggering toll in human misery and envionmental damage. This eye-opening expose offers, for the first time, an intimate look at the defining business story of our time.

Review:

'With unusual insight and reportorial perseverance Alexandra Harney presents the inconvenient truths about China and globalization that flat worlders have overlooked. This book is very important and is a must read for those who want to understand how today's world really works.' - Clyde Prestowitz, President of the Economic Strategy Institute '[An] engrossing tale of Dickensian industrialization ... Packed with facts, figures and sympathetic portraits of Chinese workers and managers, Harney's is a perceptive take on the world's workshop' Publishers Weekly
